Matt found us through this web site, stopped in for a visit and a friendship has followed.
This 53 Chevrolet came to us as a uncompleted project. Actually a botched project. Our job is to repair the damaged/botched chop and make her a runner. The more we looked at this project the more we found that most everything was in need of some sort of repair. We have the top in place. The motor now has mounts and the transmission has a custom tublar cross member not a ratchet straps holding it in place. More to come..
1964 Chevy C10. An iconic truck for its era. Fast forward to 2014 and see a 1964 Chevy C10 with an LS 7 mounted in front of a Tremic T56 six speed., Wilwood six piston front calipers grabbing on to 13 inch front rotors. The rear nine inch sports four piston calipers pinching 12 inch rotors. Add to this a Roadster Shop Chassis, and it seems to us that this pick up is shaping up to be a kick ass truck!
But hey, you decide.
Converting a 49 Chevy pick-up to independent front suspension with disc brakes, from the stock straight front axle and drum brakes. Adding a four link rear suspension with coilovers and a new Ford 9" in the rear. Boxing the frame in the critical structural areas. We also repaired some rusted holes in the frame. A slight chop to the top may be on the agenda next. The top has now been chopped 2 inches. This gives the truck a good look without being two extreme.
